The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) has given Israel a low grade in the field of security of weapons-usable nuclear materials. Israel was ranked 25 out of the 32 countries with weapons-usable nuclear materials, with an overall score of 56 points out of 100 in a rating that classifies countries according to their ability to secure nuclear materials for military use that are stored in onsite facilities.

Only Uzbekistan, China, India, Vietnam, Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea (last place) were ranked lower than Israel. The US is ranked 13 and Australia was at the top of the list.
